    -Because I got called a whore for wearing a short plaid skirt when I was 10

    -and because when Nujood Ali from Yemen was 10 she got divorced

    -Because black girls’ names became my classmates’ favorite “joke” when I was 11

    -and because when an 11-year-old girl in Texas was raped by 18 men the New York Times wrote of how the girl “dressed older than her age”

    -Because I started counting calories when I was 14

    -and because when Malala Yousafzai was 14 she was shot in the head for trying to go to school

    -Because I heard a boy greet a girl with “hey slut” today at age 16
    -and because when a 16-year-old girl in Steubenville, Ohio was filmed being raped by two boys at a party while unconscious the CNN reporters talked about how tragic it was because the rapists had such bright futures as athletes

    -Because I will have to watch my drink at all bars and parties when I am 22

    -and because when CeCe McDonald was 22 she was sentenced to 41 months in prison for defending herself against a man who screamed transphobic, racist insults at her and then slashed her face with a bottle

    -Because no matter what age I am the biggest threat to men will still be heart disease, and the biggest threat to women will still be men.

    -Because it is not just about me, because it is not just about anger, because it is not just a JOKE, because it is not just about “hating men,” because it is not just about girls with vaginas, because it is not just about ending “slut”, because it is not just about white straight girls in Rookie magazine, because it is not just about writing on backs, because it is not just about the fact that gay men are “fags” but lesbians are “hot,” because it is not just about pictures of thin white girls being the only google image results for the search phrase “beautiful women”, because it is not just about writing signs, because it is not just about what she was wearing or how many times she said yes before she changed her answer to no, because misogyny is not just about one thing and feminism is not just about one thing and it is not just “a trend” and it will not “happen” in just one way.

    -And because yes. It is about equality for EVERYONE, but first and foremost it needs to be about equality for girls, because they are not treated equally to men, in every single sense, and you are not going to take feminism away from me and call me bossy/hostile/aggressive and make this about yourself or make it into a joke, because truth be told, I’m not joking and I’m tired of explaining. If you want to call yourself a feminist, you work hard to spread feminism, you do not turn this into a contest of whose struggle is greater and constantly demand to know what you can get out of feminism personally. Feminism is not just about you, or me, it is about everyone. If you’re male and you’re tired of men being stereotyped as hyper-masculine, soulless, sexist, inherent leader-tyrant creatures, then go out and prove the patriarchy wrong and fight for girls, like someone with a soul who believes in equality would. Then, yes, feminism will be about everyone.

  3. "There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life."
    —  John Lennon (via realizes)

    My part I of a two part series on Pope Francis and why I think he rocks!  There has been a backlash against religiosity lately with all that is going on in the world and folks like him definitely help restore your faith!

    I’m agnostic bordering on atheist and this man warms my heart. He is what we should all strive to be.

    I’m not religious, but I love this guy!

    My brother killed himself
    on the twenty-eighth Thursday of last year
    and I missed four days of work
    and my mom wanted to know ‘Why’.
    My brother
    he was always a fan of beauty
    but what he did
    was not beautiful at all.

    And last week I got the news
    that one of my good friends from high school
    had overdosed
    except this time
    she’d gone too far
    and now she was gone.
    And I had a hard time falling asleep at night
    and her mother
    hugged me tight
    and thanked me for coming to the service
    but I did not
    want to be there at all.
    This is not

    The girl down the street
    would’ve turned 21 last year
    and I can scarcely imagine
    the wild times she would’ve
    But she is buried six feet deep
    after falling nearly 300
    and she did not leave a note.
    This is not

    My freshman year of college
    and my roommate was beautiful
    and how I wanted to be just like her.
    But she wore herself down
    till she was
    almost invisible
    and if you blinked
    you had to go and find her all over again.
    So now her parents are no longer supporting her college tuition
    but are paying her hospital bills
    watching their daughter crumble.
    This is not

    So y’all can take your narcissistic
    and glamorizing
    of self harm and eating disorders and committing suicide
    and shove them as far up your ass
    as you possibly can.
    Starvation is not beautiful.
    Killing yourself is not beautiful.
    is not beautiful.
    This note I am writing
    is not beautiful.

    But you
    you are beautiful
    and it’s about damn time you start believing it.

  9. "One of the most significant negative habits we should be aware of is that of constantly allowing our mind to run off into the future. Perhaps we got this from our parents. Carried away by our worries, we’re unable to live fully and happily in the present. Deep down, we believe we can’t really be happy just yet—that we still have a few more boxes to be checked off before we can really enjoy life."

    Oh—you wouldn’t date a girl who’s ever been a stripper?
    In that case, I wouldn’t date a guy who’s ever been to a strip club.

    Oh—you wouldn’t date a girl who’s ever done porn?
    In that case, I wouldn’t date a guy who’s ever watched porn.

    You’re the reason we exist.
    You’re the demand to our supply.
    If you disdain sex workers, don’t you dare consume our labor.

    As they say in the industry, “People jack off with the left hand and point with the right.”

    They are ruining marriage, by setting the bar WAY too fucking high.

    These dudes are fucking legit.  They don’t just show up one day in court, either, they actually make friends with the kids and let them know they have a support system and that there are people in the world who care about them and will always have their back.  And less important, but also cool, is that the few times a couple of them have come into my cafe, they’ve been super friendly and polite and when I told one of the guys that I noticed his Bikers Against Child Abuse patch and wanted him to know how awesome I thought he was because of it, he got kind of shy and blushed and said, “The kids are the awesome ones, we just let them know they’re allowed to be brave.”
